WHAT: The Mavs vs. their hated rivals
WHERE: American Airlines Center, Dallas, TX
WHEN: 7:00 p.m. CT
THE STORY: The Spurs just won’t die. They’ve won 5 games in a row (vs 5 losses in a row for Dallas) and are poised, once again, to make the NBA Playoffs for the 453rd consecutive season. With a team almost entirely built of players that other teams didn’t seem to want that much, the Spurs have figured out how to do what LeBron couldn’t: win in the Western Conference.
Pop is a magician, and a showman, so expect him to pull out a few stops to stop Luka Doncic tonight and maybe throw a few one-liners at Dirk that have the big German on his way back down the court.
